Our Oxford students had their own BBQ / Cutting party this weekend with longswords being taken to milk bottles. A lot of fun was had by all. Thanks to Kristian for being a BBQ master and Mick and Sarah for hosting.
Students from our Godalming chapter as well as some from other chapters gathered for an afternoon of cutting things with swords. Whilst we don’t use sharps in our training for obvious safety reasons, it’s a useful part of our training to get the experience of cutting at inanimate objects to see just how good our blade alignment really is. And so sideswords, sickles, spears and more were set to task against objects such as milk bottles, fruit, clay and even a birthday cake. A lot of fun was had by all.
After not having seen a lot of each other over the pandemic, School of the Sword held a cutting party in Godalming this weekend with attendees from all our various chapters. Armed with milk and soft drinks bottles, we got to see how rusty our cutting had got using sharp swords against them.
There were lots of photogenic splashes, a few flying bottles and a whole lot of fun.
